Forums: Index > Fallout 3 gameplay help > Only one save at a time?

I own a PS3 and I had a level 17 good character on the go, and I was in vault 87. I want to trophies for the game so i make a new character, an evil character (which is hard for me, because I'm just a nice guy) but just before i leave the vault, it lets you choose anything else and I'm fine so i leave. Go to save to againg and my old save was gone! it was created just after i left 101, and I know that I didn't save because the security guys decided to start to shoot me so i was only happy to get out. I know that it is impossible to get my character back, I just want to know what happens for my new good, character, and new neutral character (for the trophies). Please Help!

I haven't played on the consoles but I assume the saves are similar through out the versions. On the PC I know theres 3 different type of saves. First one is auto-save, which save automatically by default when you change areas, use the wait feature, or sleep in bed. Second one is quick-save which I'm not sure if this feature is actually in the consoles seeing how the buttons are limited. Lastly you can save by choosing a to make a new save, or save over another saved game. The most recent save always appear up on the top of the list. --Lord0din69 09:00, 18 December 2008 (UTC)
On pc you can also do console command save for a named save. Quite useful. =^.^= User-Mirar pawprint14Mirar (Talk) 17:44, 20 December 2008 (UTC)
How do you quick-save? I never know you can do that xD Firelance 18:02, 20 December 2008 (UTC)
On PC? F5, quick-load F9. User-Mirar pawprint14Mirar (Talk) 20:41, 20 December 2008 (UTC)
